This West London property could be the narrowest house for sale in town, just six feet wide.

The skinny two bedroom house is in Shepherds Bush and sits on an exceptionally thin piece of land between two shops on Main Street. The infill house, listed with Winkworths for just under £ 1 million, extends over five floors, including a dining room that opens onto a green back courtyard.

Square footage is limited, of course, but what it lacks in width it makes up for vertically and with quirky features, including a bedroom accessed via a trapdoor and a bathroom that appears to have a mezzanine. There’s also a surprising amount of storage cleverly built into the property, meaning it works hard for every inch.

And if future owners start feeling claustrophobic, they can always flee to the garden or roof terrace of the house, which, albeit tiny, offers at least a view of the surrounding neighborhood.
